Decided I needed a new gardening hat and cobbled together leftover bits of campervan fabric. Not quite enough so used a piratical one for the top. Thought reversible would be good so made second hat and fixed them together. What I hadn't thought through was what would happen when turning up the brim! But, hey, it's only for the garden - and maybe on the odd campsite.

Lovely!  I need that campervan fabric... I just can't figure out what for...  ><
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I had the same dilemma and decided to make a kitchen apron. I fully intend to take it when we go campervanning. The leftovers covered a semicircular headrest and the leftover-leftovers went into the hat!
